The Patreon Experiment

You want to support Tor but you don't want to manage your own node or you don't have enough experience to set up your own server?
I created a Patreon page to collect donations to fund a fleet of community Tor nodes: https://www.patreon.com/flxn
The community nodes and the list of my Patreons will be featured on this page.
Thank you for your support!

0) Hosting

You can run your Tor relay on every supported linux machine that you have SSH access to, be it in your home, a virtual server, or a dedicated server.
But not every hoster or ISP allows Tor relays in their network.

1) Configuration

Running an Exit Node is the best way to help the Tor network but you have to be aware of the risks.
More Info: Tor Exit Guidelines, Tips for Running an Exit Node with Minimal Harassment

The script will download a notice about exit nodes (tor-exit-note.html) to /etc/tor/tor-exit-notice.html that will be published on your selected DirPort (Default: 80).
This is the US version of the file. Please update the sections accordingly to match the legislation of your country.
Please also replace FIXME_YOUR_EMAIL_ADDRESS with your mail address!
